Sophomores: Today during Student Life you will meet with your college counselor to continue your work in SCOIR. You will need to have your device to SCOIR. While a phone will work, you may prefer to have your computer to simplify the process of entering information into SCOIR. Sophomores should report to the following locations during Student Life:

Animus (Segura) – Foundation Hall

Humanitas (McClanahan) – US Library Annex

Impetus (Wolcott) – Ms. Pettigrew-Fanzo’s classroom

Integritas (Wilner) – Mr. Arthur’s classroom


S.H.R.E.D. Charlotte – Skaters Helping Realize Excellent Dreams – is a Charlotte Nonprofit Organization that helps families with children suffering from extraordinary medical conditions. Their main event each spring is a custom skateboard art auction, and Cannon has been given two blank skateboard decks to design and donate to the cause – one with “traditional” art, and one with “maker” art. All Cannon students are encouraged to submit a proposal for a design! Design finalists will be chosen by the Upper School Arts department on January 8, and you’ll have from January until early April to complete the piece. If you’re interested, email Mush ( to get more info or to submit your design.

Animus + Humanitas 


There is no better time to give back than during the holiday season! 

We have partnered with Operation Paperback to deliver gently used books to troops abroad. 

We are hosting a book drive to collect new or gently used books over the next week. 

December 7th- 11th

Students, faculty, and staff we hope you all join us in spreading love and kindness during this unique Christmas season. 

Books can be dropped off below the Animus and Humanitas walls by the spiral staircase.

Check your email for book guidelines! 

Thank You
